Ensuring more local content in mega projects

The government is set to formulate a mechanism to monitor usage of Malaysian materials and services in mega construction projects in the country and overseas. International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed (pic) said it would be jointly developed by the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida) and the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB). “Malaysian products have been outstanding (in the export market). There’s no reason why we can’t increase the percentage of local products in the course of construction,” he added.
